Help us provide “More homes, great services, better lives”

Support Worker – Saxon Court
Location: Northampton
Salary: £16,816 – £19,088 per annum (£8.74 to £9.92 per hour) plus enhancements
Hours: 37 per week, full time – part time and bank hours available

Closing Date: Friday 31 January 2020

Interviews will be arranged on an ongoing basis

This is a Quick Apply Vacancy so the application form will take no longer than 15 minutes to complete

Do you want to be part of something new and exciting with an established Care & Support provider, rated outstanding by the CQC in Northampton?

Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA), is opening a brand new bespoke ‘housing with support’ scheme; Saxon Court in Northampton. Based just outside Northampton Town Centre, Saxon Court is only about a ½ mile walk through the serene Victoria Park.

This will be an exciting opportunity for you to be part of the set up team for this new service.  It will be home to 17 residents with complex learning disabilities and or have a condition on the autistic spectrum with behaviours that concern and associated mental health conditions.

Do you thrive knowing you’ve made a difference in someone’s life?

As these residents will be coming from either an institutionalised environment or living away from home for the first time, you will go on this exciting journey with them and play a big part in helping them integrate and live independently in the community.  To do this, you will work with them to find out their interests and hobbies and plan activities accordingly, provide emotional wellbeing support and advice, encourage them to access befriending and advocacy services.

Time to draw on your creative and dynamic side…

No two days will be the same as you may have already gathered. Support could be anything from making friends, personal care, painting, bowling, reading, going to the gym, park, cinema; cooking cleaning, cooking tasty balanced meals or even watching football… you name it.

But, ultimately it must be what they want to do!

How great would it be to be paid to play scrabble or plan a holiday?

Although the role will be challenging it will also be highly rewarding and you would be making a difference in someone’s life and putting a smile on their face.

Don’t sweat the small stuff:

  • You don’t need to have experience in care as we will provide you with the required training to help you fully meet the needs of the residents. All you need is common sense, a ‘can do’ attitude, be willing to learn and share our values as an organisation.
  • You don’t need to be a car driver as the project is only about a 5 minute serene walk from Northampton Train Station and the Bus Station. 

Flexibility is key though for this role as the shift times will be reliant on what activity the residents have got on and when they want to do it. All shifts will be on rota basis and will be spread across weekdays, weekends and bank holidays.  This includes nights and sleep- ins; a 33% bonus is paid for waking nights and double time paid for Christmas and New Year shifts. In addition, an allowance of £36.78 also paid for sleep-ins.

We have various contracts available and welcome applicants that are looking for part-time or full-time opportunities.

What’s in it for you?

  • c36.5 days leave a year with additional 2 days after 5 years service
  • Healthcare Cash Back Plan worth up to £1200 per year on your routine healthcare costs e.g. Dentist, opticians etc.
  • Company Pension Scheme options with contributions matched by NCHA and includes life assurance cover
  • Enhanced maternity/paternity/adoption pay
  • Free enhanced DBS check where applicable
  • £250 for successful referral of a friend/family member to work at NCHA
  • Employee Recognition Scheme
  • Great learning & development and qualification opportunities
  • Discounted bus passes and gym membership, discounts and cashback at major retailers
  • Free access to employee Advice Line; offering a 24-hour confidential advice service to discuss work or home related concerns with professional advisors

All successful candidates will be required to take a numerical and literacy as part of the selection process.

As this is a new service opening in February 2020, you will be required to work in our other projects in Northampton (5 minutes’ walk from Saxon Court) and Burton Latimer whilst the project is set up. All travel expenses will be reimbursed during this period.

Please note that although the position is based in Northampton, you will be required to attend a one-day Corporate Induction event at Head Office in Nottingham as part of the induction process; travel expenses will be reimbursed.

Interviews: Interviews are being arranged on an ongoing basis

You will need to attach a CV in order to apply for this role.
